What is Sacred Cacao?

Sacred cacao is a term used to describe cacao that is used for spiritual and ceremonial purposes. It is often used in ceremonies to promote feelings of connection, awareness, peace, well-being, intuition, creativity, and spirituality.

Cacao is a plant that has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures in Central and South America. It was considered a sacred plant and was used in rituals and ceremonies. The Mayans and Aztecs believed that cacao was a gift from the gods and that it had the power to connect people to their spiritual nature.

Sacred cacao is typically made from high-quality cacao beans that have been minimally processed. It is often mixed with other ingredients, such as spices, herbs, or flowers, to enhance its flavor and properties.

The effects of sacred cacao can vary depending on the individual and the ceremony. However, some common effects include:

  • Increased feelings of connection and love

  • Enhanced awareness and intuition

  • Improved mood and well-being

  • Increased creativity and inspiration

  • Spiritual experiences

If you are interested in trying sacred cacao, it is important to do your research and find a reputable source. You should also talk to your doctor if you have any health concerns.

Here are some of the benefits of sacred cacao:

  • Improved mood and well-being: Cacao is rich in magnesium, which is a mineral that has been shown to improve mood and reduce anxiety. It is also a good source of antioxidants, which can help to protect the body against damage from free radicals.

  • Increased energy and focus: Cacao contains caffeine, which can help to increase energy levels and improve focus. It also contains theobromine, which is a stimulant that has a similar effect to caffeine but is less likely to cause jitters or anxiety.

  • Reduced stress and anxiety: Cacao has been shown to have mood-boosting and stress-relieving effects. This is due to its high levels of magnesium and antioxidants.

  • Improved heart health: Cacao is rich in flavanols, which are compounds that have been shown to improve heart health. Flavanols can help to reduce blood pressure, improve blood flow, and protect the heart against damage.

  • Increased cognitive function: Cacao is a good source of antioxidants, which can help to protect the brain against damage from free radicals. It is also a good source of magnesium, which is a mineral that has been shown to improve cognitive function.

Pure cacao is plant medicine used specifically for inner awakening, creative guidance, and inner healing. When cacao is used during a sacred medicine ritual, we set intentions for ourselves as well as for the collective of the group as a way to connect to ourselves and one another. Once the cacao has been consumed, euphoric states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.

During the ceremony you will experience a deep meditation, breath work, community connection, journaling, sound healing, reiki as well as an outlet for the new found creative healing through dance or inner reflection. Please do not consume caffeine or alcohol at least 6 hours before the ceremony and let your host know if you are on prescription medications or have a sensitivity to caffeine so she can adjust your dose accordingly. Bring a journal and pen and come with an open mind.
